Very friendly efficient and informative trip and a fantastic day out, great value all round.
Excellent tour. Guides were great. Could do without the stop at the wine shop.
Excellent trip with well informed affable guide. The lady guide in Sienna was particularly good taking us to a private museum in the Rhino sector of town and the lunch arranged was good value and very enjoyable. Sienna is awesome. Although very touristy and so well preserved it didn't look real, San Gimignano was nonetheless amazing despite a bit of rain.
Siena is a must see. Highlights are the Palio and the cathedral. The guide provided insight into the significance of the Palio to the Senese. Quite fascinating. The cathedral is stunning - words cannot do justice to it. On to San Gimignano which provides stunning views of Tuscany. Remember to bring an umbrella - we were caught in a thunder storm just before leaving San Gimignano.
Tour and guide outstanding, way beyond what we expected. We highly recommend Viator and will use again for our next trip.
If you are in Florence for a few days do not miss getting out of town to these beautiful towns in Tuscany. Our guide from Florence was knowledgable and very entertaining- multi lingual and could also cater for the Spanish speakers on the tour. In Sienna, our guide was a local who gave a fascinating coverage of how this town is divided into areas, rivalry between areas and between Florence and Sienna as well. Optional is a traditional Tuscan lunch at a restaurant ( in a cellar dating back to 700's!). Highly recommended for the extra 15 euros.Traditional Tuscan bean soup, hand made local pasta, cheese, salamis and plenty on vino!
The tour was wonderful. The tour guide in Siena was very knowledge and took the perfect pace for the people on the tour. And the tour guide that was with us from Florence even offered to make a reservation at a good restaurant where we had a wonderful lunch and got to converse with people from all over the world. Finally, one last unscheduled stop on the way back was made for a free wine tasting that was wonderful.
Wonderful tour - probably the highlight of our holiday. Excellent guide. Obviously the tours were not exhaustive given the time available but were enough to put both places in context. Now I'd love to go back and spend more time exploring.
Great overview of Siena and San Gimignano; just enough to want you to go back for more. Fantastic guides too.
The trip was great, the host very friendly and helpful. We enjoyed the drive and cities.
It was nice to leave florence for a day to see what the outskirts have to offer.Again lovely little villages and towns.Highlights of Siena definitely going to the museum and seeing where they race the world famous Palio.
Then we went to San Gimignano amazing place and churches.
This was an outstanding tour! My wife and I and 2 adult daughters loved it. Very enjoyable. Tour was well paced to allow enough free time for shopping and eating. Tour guides were professional, very knowledgeable, and made the trip fun. First vacation using Viator and would book with them again.
Tour was excellent. We had a full and lovely day. Tour guide was fun and informative. Thank you.
